Other MultiValue vendors may claim to offer tools to create or
enhance MultiValue applications but they have absolutely nothing to
compare in user presentation, development speed, time to market,
cost and openness than mv.NET from BlueFinity.
Moreover, these vendors have one thing in common: they they
keep you tightly tied in to a particular vendor or MultiValue
methodology. Bluefinity International has taken a completely
different approach and based mv.NET on the .NET technology from
Microsoft. And, in doing so, allows organizations using
MultiValue technology to utilize both the immense range of
application development tools and the huge pool of .NET aware
application developers in order to meet the significant challenges
of an ever changing application development landscape.
Native Microsoft .NET Access to MultiValue Databases
mv.NET provides a 100% native .NET interface to all major MultiValue database platforms, allowing .NET developers to
access all aspects of MultiValue systems - both data and program
code - from within their .NET application environment enabling
superb programmer productivity.
All Major MultiValue Databases Supported
mv.NET provides the developer with the greatest flexibility
to ensure that applications can be deployed across the widest
range of databases; it is currently available on D3, jBASE,
mvBASE, Reality, Power95, QM, UniData, UniVerse and UniVision
and others by request. Moreover, mv.NET is an independent
release, so even legacy MultiValue applications can be easily
integrated into the most contemporary information
infrastructures without the needs for costly, inconvenient
Leverage Modern Connectivity
BlueFinity International has extended its reach to enable
applications running on any flavor of MultiValue database to be
deployed across any of the wide range of today's interface
devices - tablets, handhelds, phones and other
mobile devices. Native applications
can be produced for iPhone/iPad/iPod or Android using a common
C# based development environment. Alternatively, browser based
applications can be created using ASP.NET and HTML5 that adapt
themselves to the appearance of native platforms. mv.NET
provides the route to fulfill both of these requirements without
learning multiple mobile platform skill sets.
No Need for Specific MultiValue Database Knowledge - Use .NET Developers
The Solution Objects component
set of mv.NET allows the developer to create a strongly-typed
class-based (business objects) .NET access layer to their
MultiValue database. It provides the complete spectrum of
features required to do this - the design tools to create the
defintion (entity model) of the access layer, the code generator
to produce the access layer program code and the run-time
support libraries. This allows .NET developers to access
application data in a familiar, simplified, intuitive and
database independent way. In fact, .NET application developers
no longer need to understand MultiValue database technology in
order to create their MultiValue-linked .NET solutions. This
means that the largest programmer pool for hire of Microsoft
oriented service organizations is now open to the MultiValue
Complete Development Environment within Visual Studio
Not only does mv.NET excel by providing the complete
environment in the form of a series of fully integrated plug-ins
to Visual Studio (2005, 2008, 2010 and 2012); it is a unique
feature. No other product in the market provides this level of
integration! New MultiValue applications can now be developed
without ever needing to leave Visual Studio! This improves
developer productivity resulting in improved time to market for
applications and reduced support times.
Simplest Yet Most Powerful and Flexible Way of Creating RESTful Web Services Against a MultiValue Database
The integration with
service support demonstrates the power and flexibility of
BlueFinity's entity modelling framework - a framework that sets
BlueFinity apart from all of the other vendors in the MultiValue
market space. Developers are now able to generate industry
standard RESTful services without having to be a network stack
or HTTP guru. Easy, automated service generation combined with
fully customizable service content provides the developer with
the best of both worlds.
Phased Development and Rollout Approach
Enhance and deploy your application in stages or all at
once. Both versions of your application coexist so you can
develop and deploy to suit your own timescale, budget and
Powerful, Automatic Web Service Generation Capabilities
Because BlueFinity provides all of the 'plumbing' and
framework to support the application creation process,
developers can save valuable time and money as well as reduce
the inherent risks of developing their own framework in getting
the application implemented and ready to launch. Developers are
able to create industry standard web services to populate user
interfaces with MultiValue resident data in a fraction of the
time normally taken to build this type of infrastructure.
Advanced Database Connection Management Technology
A key aspect of all .NET implementations is managing the
connections between the user interface and the database.
mv.NET's Session Manager makes certain that those connections
are handled in the most efficient and cost-effective way,
ensuring that users get outstanding response from their
MultiValue applications. IT managers can both guarantee a
minimum number of database connections while at the same time
allow the connection pool to grow in times of high demand.
mv.NET's session sharing and management provides a sophisticated
environment for striking a balance between the need to minimize
database license consumption and the need for rapid connection
establishment. Web and Web Services applications can be very
unpredictable and can have uneven usage patterns, but mv.NET
session management can be employed to ensure the most efficient
use is made of the underlying database licenses. This mv.NET
technology can both guarantee a minimum number of database
connections are consumed all the time while allowing the
connection pool to grow in times of high demand.
"Fetch on Demand" Data Retrieval Technology for High Performance Application Delivery
Users expect immediate response from today's applications.
With this requirement in mind, mv.NET has been engineered with
in-built 'fetch on demand' data retrieval technology which is
under the control of the developer. Therefore, application
interface response times can be automatically safeguarded even
in situations where large volumes of data are being returned or
where network connections offer restricted bandwidth; all of
this without any extra coding from the developer. The result? A
happy user and a happy developer!
Comprehensive ADO.NET provider featuring Dynamic Data Normalization
mv.NET dynamically manages the normalization of data from
MultiValue databases to ADO.NET. Because of this, MultiValue
databases now appear just like another SQL database to
developers working with Microsoft's ADO.NET technology. The
resulting recordset is fully "MultiValue" aware enabling full
update down to sub-value level as well as read functionality.
Support for Stateless Applications
Stateless application support within the product allows
developers to cut development timescales by automatically
persisting data and status history across application
Support for Framework 2.0 through 4.5
In today's fast changing world, some VARs and end-users will
have deployed Framework 2.0 based applications, yet new work is
almost certainly going to require Framework 4.5. Bluefinity is
committed to enabling different frameworks to coexist and to
providing ongoing support for new versions of the .NET
Support for both 32 and 64-bit O/S Platforms
In-line with BlueFinity's on-going support for Microsoft
technology, mv.NET is available in both 32 and 64-bit builds.
Support for Microsoft Silverlight and WPF
Silverlight and WPF applications are able to access
MultiValue data via industry standard interfaces which allows
the full power of Silverlight's and WPF's excellent data binding
technologies to be used against MultiValue data and business
logic and enables the creation of stunning, browser based, truly
modern application interfaces.
